#### Solution Preview

In order to be able to write them, I will use a and b instead of alpha and beta; I will also use M_a as a notation for M sub a, and conj(a) will mean a bar (the conjugate of a). The problem does not specify, but I assume H means the algebra of quaternions.

(a)our element a in H can be uniquely written as x+y*i+z*j+t*k, where x,y,z,t are ...
